"What intrigued me most about this scene was, of course, the aspen. It was a wonderful day in the mountains of Colorado, and the aspen trees were at their best. I came across a lovely little wood; here I have tried to capture its charm and its view: the snowy mountains of the Sawatch Range and the smoke rising from the chimneys in the valley below. To experience the turning of the aspen - Colorado gold - is a true visual treasure."
— Peter Ellenshaw
The colors of autumn are a favorite of artists everywhere. The aspens in the Rockies are especially spectacular and here Ellenshaw has achieved an incredible effect of dramatic backlight and golden luminescence.
